Well, we could sort of blame it on the food, since I'm fairly certain we caught it during one of the many holiday gatherings we've attended over the past couple weeks. I'm feeling mostly better now. Jessica didn't start feeling sick until a few days after me, so she's still in the thick of it. Nothing terrible; just a cold. But for some reason I got a super sore neck right around the same time I got sick, so I'd get daggers of pain if I moved my neck too fast. A super sore neck and a cold that makes you have to sneeze is a Hell-spawned combo.
It sucks we had to go to the King Diamond concert while we were feeling crummy, but I had already purchased the tickets and I couldn't get a refund. Plus he's exclusively playing old stuff this tour, which made it ideal for people like us who seem to have an incredibly hard time liking anything made within the past couple decades.
